Best for large groups. Delicious soup base. Tons of selection of meats, veggies and noodles. Mix your own sauce. Fun place.

We came as a group of 4, ordered 3 dishes, and could not quite finish the food. The "red revolution" spicy fish in stock was my favorite, and I think I could eat that for days (its a HUGE dish for 15$). Strong recommendation

both of these dishes I first loved at Princess Garden, before it changed hands. Now the owners of that place have a restaurant Far Asia in Shakopee. In any case, the Little Szechuan versions are great but really expensive! I got lamb and chicken today...More
